Thane Korth'azz is one of the Four Horsemen and most likely represents the "Pale Rider of Death" based on his light green color scheme.
It has been noted that Korth'azz is a fallen dwarf paladin. There is speculation that he fell to the Scourge after Uther's death, as he might have been a leading member of the Knights of the Silver Hand. This is at least partially confirmed in issue #2 of the Ashbringer comic in which Alexandros Mograine refers to Korth'azz as "one of Uther's men".

Thane Korth'azz survived his encounter in the first siege against Naxxramas in the Eastern Plaguelands, and subsequently returns as one of the Four Horsemen in the newly relocated necropolis floating above the Dragonblight. According to Commander Eligor Dawnbringer's lecture in Wintergarde Keep, Korth'azz "holds the power of flame".
